The Connecticut Sun are locked into the No. 3 seed in the WNBA playoffs as they host the Indiana Fever on Friday night.
The Sun (26-12) are trying to establish momentum for the postseason while the Fever (12-26) have been eliminated from playoff contention.
Connecticut is coming off a 90-76 home win against the Los Angeles Sparks on Tuesday while the Fever look to bounce back from their worst loss of the season, a 96-69 home defeat to the Chicago Sky the same night.
Alyssa Thomas led the Sun with 27 points, 14 assists and 12 rebounds against L.A. as she set league records with 304 assists and six triple-doubles for the season.
Indiana could have a difficult time slowing down Thomas because it’s missing two of its best defensive players in Lexie Hull (shoulder) and Kristy Wallace (knee).
Indiana fell behind 18-9 after one quarter and 49-34 at halftime and never recovered against the Sky. NaLyssa Smith led the Fever with 16 points and seven rebounds.
